Mind Over Matter is Tata Steel’s annual innovation challenge for students. Launched in 2014, the programme challenges students to conceptualise solutions for real product and manufacturing problems. The best ideas are invited to Tata Steel to create prototypes of their ideas.
Season 3 of Mind over Matter received an overwhelming participation from more than 30 top engineering institutes of India including the IITs, NITs and the likes. The competition witnessed a record ~270 idea submissions against a total of 12 challenges (topics) put forth by our R&D team. A total of 10 teams (7 teams with 2 students each and 3 teams with only one member) were selected and invited to work with Tata Steel’s R&D team under the guidance of assigned mentors as part of their 2-month internship. A total of 5 teams were selected in the pre-finals held on July 14 and went on to fight it out for ultimate glory in the grand finale.
